Flashback to my childhood. I loved everything Minnie Mouse and refused to use any pencil other than the red and white polkadot one that my mom gave me one Christmas. Until now, I still vividly remember how it looked like. There was a little Minnie figurine attached at the end, where the erasers usually go.
When I turned 18, my cake was also Minnie-themed!
More denim inspiration for those who need ideas on how to rock skinny jeans! I personally prefer to keep it clean and simple when I’m wearing jeans, so I tend to pair them with plain tops or classic patterns that are just as straightforward. Less is more!

Perks of living in a tropical country - summer clothes all year round! Just G has always been that one brand I like that doesn’t strictly follow all the seasons, so it’s always a breath of fresh air to go into their store in December and not find heavy outerwear or dark colors. Their latest collection features a lot of coral hues and cool blues which are perfect for casual day dressing.
I don’t always go out wearing fancy clothes the whole day. I usually wear simple and comfortable outfits like these whenever I have to go on a quick coffee run or do errands at the bank, grocery shopping, store pull-outs, etc. I do try to put in a little bit of effort every time though, like how I paired my romper with a jacket and my printed tee with a floral skirt in the first two looks to avoid looking too sloppy or lazy, and how I played with different patterns in the last one because I felt like I need to do something with my outfit if I didn’t want to wear fancy shoes and accessories!
I can’t be any more cliche than this. Only 4 days left before Christmas and I can’t help but inject some red into my monochromatic wardrobe. It’s such a festive color!
All of these outfits feature EMODA items, which makes me wonder if I have too many EMODA in my closet, lol. Besides shopping in Japan and HK, I’m also always ordering from their global webstore. They just started their End of Season Sale yesterday, and I was able to get some items that were 70% off!
I keep promising myself to not shop for anything before my Taiwan trip in January, but I can’t keep still when there are all sorts of good deals around me!
Following the latest ’90s fashion craze is the return of shirts tied around the waist! I remember being scolded by teachers way back in 3rd grade because my classmates and I would often tie jackets on our waists as a sort of uniform accessory, and it was greatly discouraged. Not surprisingly though, since we couldn’t even wear colored hair ties or pluck our eyebrows. Ah, but I digress.
Anyhow, wrapping flannel shirts and leather jackets around the waist used to be part of a whole grunge look (think ripped denim, Chuck Taylors and Doc Martens) , but an updated version of the trend has sprung out of recent F/W collections. Kanye West sported it with a tailored jacket, while Rita Ora wore it with black peeptoe heels. What a lovely juxtaposition of dressy and casual.
While doing research on this trend, I saw a photo of a girl wearing a white button-down, a white skirt, a statement necklace and classy high heels. My favorite part? She tied a light-washed denim jacket on her waist as a cool contrast to her classy outfit. I’m so inspired to try something similar soon!
Let the nostalgic feels begin. What do you think of this comeback?

P.S. Owning the most overrated blogger title, since I can’t remember the number of times I’ve been called overrated in this lifetime. :P
